Hannah Solar’s Net Zero Building Makes a Statement
Hannah Solar is the largest solar integrator in the fast-growing Georgia market.
Having outgrown their building, Hannah Solar refurbished a building in a bustling area of Atlanta. They turned a (frankly) terrible looking building into a tasteful asset to the neighborhood. And rightly so, they incorporated a rooftop solar system, building efficiency measures, and LED lighting to make the building net zero – it makes more energy than it uses. But the many people who drive by every day couldn’t tell it was a green building, and might have missed the “solar” in their name. Not any more.
The addition of a Spotlight Solar “solar tree” (what people tend to call it) ensures that people notice solar, and Hannah Solar.
The construction process attracted a fair bit of attention. Here is Pete Marte, CEO, being interviewed by one of the three TV reporters who covered the story. Also on hand were executives from Georgia Power, which has facilitated the rapid growth of the solar industry in GA. Leaders from the Atlanta mayor’s office, commercial real estate, investment banking, solar finance, sports marketing, electric vehicle, and even the propane business turned up to see what was up.
The crowd was treated to a lovely day, and gorgeous Lumos solar panels topping the Spotlight Solar “Lift” structure, color-matched to Hannah Solar’s logo.
Now, when cars approach the building, they can’t help but notice solar in a How-About-That way. They will also notice the electric vehicles it is powering with clean energy. Hannah is also the largest installer of EV charging stations in Atlanta.
Our thanks to the Hannah Solar team (a portion of them pictured below) for partnering with us to make solar visible and beautiful. We’re privileged to have Hannah Solar as a Certified Integrator.
